    the lemmons were the 714`S. Although they were slightly yellowish, the name was the manufacturer`s I think.

      Do you remember what the manufacturer's name was?

        I puzzled on that for a sec.
        Weren`t they Rorers?
        Hang on.
        Yes, Rorer & Lemmon
        I think they were also called "Soapies"
        Although my drug days are behind me, in the old days I tried everything.... twice, at least.

        Methaqualone was manufactured in the United States under the name Quaalude by the pharmaceutical firms Rorer and "Lemmon" with the numbers 714 stamped on the tablet, so people often referred to Quaalude as 714s, "Lemmons", or "Lemmon 7s". Methaqualone was also manufactured in the USA under the trade names Sopor and Parest. After the legal manufacture of the drug ended in the United States in 1982, underground laboratories in Mexico continued illegal manufacture of methaqualone all through the 1980s, continuing the use of the "714" stamp, until their popularity waned in the early 1990s. Bristol Myers manufactured this drug until taken out of the market in 1982 as well.[citation needed]
